JC & AW had a fantastic conversation with Charlie Weingroff. Charlie is a PT, ATC, Strength Coach and Educator.
Charlie is currently Physical Performance Lead and Head Strength & Conditioning Coach for the Canadian Men’s National Basketball Team, which currently tops all foreign countries with a total of 20 active players in the NBA. He often lectures overseas often, and his relationship with Beijing Yanding Trading Company has brought him through mainland China for the last 5 years.
Previous roles Charlie has held have been Nike Executive Performance Council, Lead Physical Therapist for the United States Marine Corps Special Operations Command, Head Strength & Conditioning Coach for the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA, and Director of Athletic Development for the Roddick-Grunberg Tennis Academy. Charlie has consulted for teams in all major North American sports as well as Manchester United and Manchester City in the English Premiere League.
His Training = Rehab series is often discussed as a thought leading model that brought to light the value of medical, fitness, and science professionals all working together as one staff or unit.
In this conversation, we learn about Charlies background and philosophy and also if Marvel or DC comics is better :-)
Charlie is amazingly knowledgable and you're sure to get some great info out of this conversation so enjoy.
